When’s the last time you had a professional picture taken of just you? No kids. No significant other. I’ve discovered that there is something amazing about a beautiful portrait of YOU! It can make you feel special or beautiful or handsome. It can be used to showcase the you that you want the world to see. Capturing Harrisburg Headshots for people is a new found passion of mine.
Not so long ago, people linked headshots with movie stars, models, and other celebrities. However, a headshot is now also commonly used for business marketing and even dating sites.
Why Do I Need A Headshot?
It presents a professional appearance
In business, First impressions are vital. There are too many voices screaming for potential clients’ attention so you want your first impression to be a friendly one.
You want to present yourself and your business as decisive, important and indispensable.
As a business owner, you don’t want to be using a cropped image of yourself from your trip to the beach this summer or have your friend with the nice camera taking the pictures. You need to invest in YOU!
When you own or run a business, people associate your face with your business. That’s why it is so important that you have a high-quality, professional headshot. Using your phone, electronic device or camera to take a photo just isn’t good enough.
You will use it everywhere on the web
Your face is who we want to do business with. Let us see it, not some logo or image of your establishment. There are no less than 5 places a professional headshot could be used Here are a few:
- Your website
- Your Facebook business page
- Leaving comments on blogs
- On your blog
- Your Facebook Personal Page
- You Instagram Profile Picture
People study faces.
When potential clients come to your website, they will study your face and see if they like you or trust you with their business. A professional picture of you provides them a chance to make the connection.
Photographers are trained to bring out your personality in the picture. That’s what you are paying them for. They know the right angles, the correct head tilts and all the secret tips for making you look fab.
Keeps you up to date.
As we get older we change, don’t we? We change our hair color, our hair styles but we also change our level of confidence. Yes, we may not look as young as we like, but we are more confident in who we are and having new pictures of us will show off our confidence.
- Not Just for Women or Business OwnersNot only do business owners need to present themselves as approachable, so should non-business owners. As someone who has pretty much been on every dating site under the sun, I have seen some real doozies as profile pictures. As a woman, I and I also want to portray the best me to you. While headshots can make you look professional, a good headshot also brings out the real you. A genuine smile can do wonders for an image.

Things to Discuss with your Photographer
Talk to your photographer about exactly what you are looking for. If you’ve seen a certain image that inspired you, share that with them as well. Make sure you let the photographer know where you plan to use the images so that they can frame you properly. Discuss things such as:
- How you see yourself. Fun and carefree or more professional and business-like
- Any locations outside of the studio that may help represent you
- Any props that you may be interested in including in your session
